About the course

Defining, measuring and managing organisational success.

In today’s global markets competition has never been tougher for both customers and investors. Although many organisations invest significant time and effort in strategy development research shows that many fail to achieve the success they planned. In many cases this is because they have no effective control framework with which to manage strategic implementation and execution and also lack the tools with which to communicate, measure and manage the most important aspects of organisational performance.
